Could be a bad or low battery, may have bad battery connections, or even a bad starter. Should try and jump start it, if it starts then there is a problem with the battery.

i have a 2011 nissan elgrand the dash lights are working battery is fine just when i turn the key i hear clicking i had someone to look at it the computer isn't reading whats wrong with it then i had somebody else to see if they could tell me whats wrong then they said there's power going from my battery to my statermotor but theres no power going from my ignition to my statermotor
